Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay has been reduced to nearly equal snap count share with colleague Royce Freeman. That being said, it truly is a toss-up between which running back will see more production in Week 3 as they will likely receive the same volume once again. The Broncos face off with the Green Bay Packers, who have not had an overly intimidating run defense to start the year in 2019. If you absolutely need to play Lindsay in a deep league flex role, especially in PPR setting, he most likely will suffice with decent production, but don't expect anything crazy.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay finished with 36 yards on 13 attempts to go along with four receptions (seven targets) for 30 yards. The 25-year-old continues to split carries with fellow running back Royce Freeman, who took away 11 potential carries while eating up some targets from quarterback Joe Flacco. Until either man demonstrates a stable workload moving forward, they shouldnt be considered a reliable fantasy option. Keep an eye on this situation in the weeks ahead.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay was contained by the Oakland Raiders Defense on Monday evening. The sophomore back from the University of Colorado tallied 43 yards rushing on 11 attempts, alongside four receptions for 23 yards. Lindsay looked nimble on the runs he had, but was unable to get past the second level on any occasion. While Lindsay should continue to lead in volume out of the Denver backfield in an offense that looks to find a groove in Week 2, the matchup is unfavorable as the Chicago Bears make their way into Denver. Lindsay is a tough flex play with one of the leagues best defense's coming to town.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay may have been hurt by the Oakland Raiders decision to release Antonio Brown on Saturday. Heading into the season, the Broncos coaching staff has been adamant that there would be more of a timeshare between Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Lindsay averaged 5.4 yards per carry last year and figured to get the bulk of the work in the receiving game due to his ability as a pass-catcher. With Brown no longer on the Raiders and the team dealing with plenty of chaos, the Broncos Defense is more likely to keep the Oakland offense in check, giving the Broncos a good chance to build a lead and rotate their backs more. Lindsay still has upside as an RB3 in season-long leagues, but he should be avoided in DFS in what is possibly the most confusing matchup of the entire week.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay did not take action on Saturday night in the Broncos preseason game versus the Los Angeles Rams. Lindsay is coming off of preseason week two where he took reps with the second team and the backs behind him looked lackluster. The 2nd-year back seems to have the starting job locked up in Denver going into the regular season as he looks to follow up a stellar rookie year.
Denver Broncos Running back Phillip Lindsay made a quick appearance on Thursday night, sharing carries during the first drive of the game versus the Seattle Seahawks. During his reps, Lindsay looked fresh and nimble as he did in 2018, breaking out for a 10-yard run and a 9-yard reception. The 2nd year back gave no reason to concern fantasy owners that were high on him before, and remains a top running back moving into the 2019 season.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (wrist) said the training staff will determine the repetitions he gets at training camp, but "in my mind I'm ready. I'm 100 percent," Lindsay said. He should be ready for Week 1, barring a setback this summer. Lindsay was one of the most pleasant surprises in his rookie season after going undrafted. The 24-year-old became Denver's go-to back and finished with 192 attempts for 1.037 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground. He also caught 35 passes for 241 yard and another score. His stock is obviously way up going into his second season, but he'll still have to remain effective to hold off a push from Royce Freeman.
Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said that running back Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp in July. He's been limited to individual drills in spring practices as he recovers from a wrist injury he suffered on Christmas Eve. I feel like Im very close, Lindsay said. Fangio said Lindsay likely could have taken part in minicamp, but the Broncos are being extra cautious. The undrafted running back went for over 1,000 yards in his rookie season as one of the biggest surprises in 2018, and he scored 10 total touchdowns. Despite his success in Year 1, Lindsay will still share touches with Royce Freeman, but Lindsay is the one to own and won't come cheap in fantasy drafts.
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay, who is recovering after right wrist surgery, is not putting a timetable on his return this offseason. Head coach Vic Fangio already ruled Lindsay out of voluntary minicamp later this month, but general manager John Elway suggested that he could return for organized team activities in May/June. Lindsay was sporting a brace instead of a hard cast on Wednesday and has taken part in limited offseason training. Lindsay went undrafted last year but had 1,278 combined yards in his rookie season to put himself firmly on the fantasy map heading into Year 2. His recovery this summer will be one to watch, but as long as he's good to go for Week 1, Lindsay will be a low-end RB1 in 2019.
